It seems that she has developed an infection. You should take her to the vet for diagnosis and medication.

It could be feline acne that has become infected and will need to be seen by a vet.

Please keep us updated on your kitty

If it does happen to be feline acne, I'd be happy to share what worked for us. Poor General had a doozy of a case and we spent nearly seven months working to get it cleared up. I'm interested to hear what the vet says.
